Facelift for Facebook
We know that changes happen everyday, but some are more recognizable than others. So don’t shocked if during one of daily (or maybe hourly) visits to Facebook, you notice something a little bit different.
You might not see it at first—the crisp, cool blue and white design will remain mostly unaltered. In fact, regaining that clean look is what this major makeover is all about: Facebook execs fear that the site is becoming too cluttered and full of spam, similar to that arch social networking rival MySpace. While applications allow a user to spruce up his or her one-of-a-kind profile page, you may often find yourself scrolling for ages to reach the bottom of the page.
So what do the blueprints say? Unlike other huge additions to the site, like the News Feed, that were never announced until they appeared, the design team is gearing this update toward us. And the coolest part is that a majority of the revamp will involve making it easier for you to change the way your page looks using tabs—much more complex than the existing “drag and drop” to re-organize. We like how they’re thinking! [Business Week]
